Jewel in the Thorn


The cactus I could not identify and would be grateful if someone can ID this for me. This is a very common type that comes to flower in the summer and has long stamens. This is a bud and the fruit is very tasty, when the thorns are removed. The green of the cactus provides an ideal contrast for the brightly colored flower. A 'Jewel in the thorn' indeed.
